Mother Earth reminds us of our responsibility to conserve our resources and tend our garden, especially our inner one, so she is able to bring forth life in abundant forms over and over every season. Here she stands in her hand-knit woolen dress (sometimes she is a bit tired of her trusty well-worn brown one, and sneaks into her other secret favorite colors), hand-knit shawl, doting on her creations. About 7 – 8” tall, with sculpted face and a firm cloth-covered wooden base. In her wisdom years, this mother is tending her calendula flowers, saving seeds for next year and flower pedals to makes slaves, dressed in a hand-knit silk/rayon mix dress, her shawl in a chevron pattern hand-knit in a fine wool/mohair mix yarn, mohair hair with a bun at the neck. She stand firmly on a wooden base, covered with a woolen fabric, 2 1/2" diameter, almost 10""tall.
